class aws_cdk.aws_ecs.EcrImage(repository, tag_or_digest)

Bases: ContainerImage

An image from an Amazon ECR repository.




# The code below shows an example of how to instantiate this type.
# The values are placeholders you should change.
from aws_cdk import aws_ecr_assets as ecr_assets
from aws_cdk import aws_ecs as ecs

# docker_image_asset: ecr_assets.DockerImageAsset

ecr_image = ecs.EcrImage.from_docker_image_asset(docker_image_asset)

Constructs a new instance of the EcrImage class.



bind(_scope, container_definition)

Called when the image is used by a ContainerDefinition.

Return type:




tag or registry/repository@digest.

For example, or


The image name. Images in Amazon ECR repositories can be specified by either using the full registry/repository

Static Methods

classmethod from_asset(directory, *, asset_name=None, build_args=None, build_secrets=None, build_ssh=None, cache_disabled=None, cache_from=None, cache_to=None, file=None, invalidation=None, network_mode=None, outputs=None, platform=None, target=None, extra_hash=None, exclude=None, follow_symlinks=None, ignore_mode=None)

Reference an image that’s constructed directly from sources on disk.

If you already have a DockerImageAsset instance, you can use the ContainerImage.fromDockerImageAsset method instead.

  • directory (str) – The directory containing the Dockerfile.

  • asset_name (Optional[str]) – Unique identifier of the docker image asset and its potential revisions. Required if using AppScopedStagingSynthesizer. Default: - no asset name

  • build_args (Optional[Mapping[str, str]]) – Build args to pass to the docker build command. Since Docker build arguments are resolved before deployment, keys and values cannot refer to unresolved tokens (such as lambda.functionArn or queue.queueUrl). Default: - no build args are passed

  • build_secrets (Optional[Mapping[str, str]]) – Build secrets. Docker BuildKit must be enabled to use build secrets. Default: - no build secrets

  • build_ssh (Optional[str]) – SSH agent socket or keys to pass to the docker build command. Docker BuildKit must be enabled to use the ssh flag Default: - no –ssh flag

  • cache_disabled (Optional[bool]) – Disable the cache and pass --no-cache to the docker build command. Default: - cache is used

  • cache_from (Optional[Sequence[Union[DockerCacheOption, Dict[str, Any]]]]) – Cache from options to pass to the docker build command. Default: - no cache from options are passed to the build command

  • cache_to (Union[DockerCacheOption, Dict[str, Any], None]) – Cache to options to pass to the docker build command. Default: - no cache to options are passed to the build command

  • file (Optional[str]) – Path to the Dockerfile (relative to the directory). Default: ‘Dockerfile’

  • invalidation (Union[DockerImageAssetInvalidationOptions, Dict[str, Any], None]) – Options to control which parameters are used to invalidate the asset hash. Default: - hash all parameters

  • network_mode (Optional[NetworkMode]) – Networking mode for the RUN commands during build. Support docker API 1.25+. Default: - no networking mode specified (the default networking mode NetworkMode.DEFAULT will be used)

  • outputs (Optional[Sequence[str]]) – Outputs to pass to the docker build command. Default: - no outputs are passed to the build command (default outputs are used)

  • platform (Optional[Platform]) – Platform to build for. Requires Docker Buildx. Default: - no platform specified (the current machine architecture will be used)

  • target (Optional[str]) – Docker target to build to. Default: - no target

  • extra_hash (Optional[str]) – Extra information to encode into the fingerprint (e.g. build instructions and other inputs). Default: - hash is only based on source content

  • exclude (Optional[Sequence[str]]) – File paths matching the patterns will be excluded. See ignoreMode to set the matching behavior. Has no effect on Assets bundled using the bundling property. Default: - nothing is excluded

  • follow_symlinks (Optional[SymlinkFollowMode]) – A strategy for how to handle symlinks. Default: SymlinkFollowMode.NEVER

  • ignore_mode (Optional[IgnoreMode]) – The ignore behavior to use for exclude patterns. Default: IgnoreMode.GLOB

Return type:


classmethod from_docker_image_asset(asset)

Use an existing DockerImageAsset for this container image.


asset (DockerImageAsset) – The DockerImageAsset to use for this container definition.

Return type:


classmethod from_ecr_repository(repository, tag=None)

Reference an image in an ECR repository.

Return type:


classmethod from_registry(name, *, credentials=None)

Reference an image on DockerHub or another online registry.

  • name (str) –

  • credentials (Optional[ISecret]) – The secret to expose to the container that contains the credentials for the image repository. The supported value is the full ARN of an AWS Secrets Manager secret.

Return type:


classmethod from_tarball(tarball_file)

Use an existing tarball for this container image.

Use this method if the container image has already been created by another process (e.g. jib) and you want to add it as a container image asset.


tarball_file (str) – Absolute path to the tarball. You can use language-specific idioms (such as __dirname in Node.js) to create an absolute path based on the current script running directory.
